The entertainment opened with a performance from Jean Beauvoir, an American singer of Haitian background. For the next hour and a half, dancers from the Orlando School of Cultural Dance and local independent dancers performed in front of the 400 guests.
In between numbers, actress Mariana Klaveno, best known for her role on HBO’s True Blood, helped conduct the live auction. Clean the World reached out to Klaveno last year after seeing a tweet she sent out about the organization. Since then she has taped public service announcements for the nonprofit and volunteered at its Vancouver facility.
Sponsors for the gala included Marietta Corporation, Caesars Foundation, Walt Disney World, The American Cleaning Institute, and Lather.
